Mr HOWSE (CALARE, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I direct a question to the Minister for Immigration in connexion with the Government's policy of encouraging the immigration of children under the Fairbridge Farms scheme. Is it a fact that widows or widowers with children may now emigrate to Australia under the assisted scheme? Will the children go to school in Australia in boarding house schools similar to those now in operation in Australia? If so, will the Minister consider using part of the Cowra migrant centre, which has excellent facilities and services that are no longer being used by the Commonwealth?
